Villas & Podere

Private Structure

(Rent Only)

Podere La Specola is housed in a small hamlet consisting of three residential units with very ancient origins.
During its millenary history, it has been the home of illustrious local personalities; it was in fact the house of property and residence of the philosopher, humanist, astrologer, as well as personal educator of the Medici family, Marsilio Ficino (1433-1499).

Today, thanks to the careful and fine recovery that has preserved the original building, it lends itself to being a welcoming and luxurious residence where you can spend a holiday in the countryside in the heart of Tuscany. The dwelling, which offers a suggestive view of green hills, expanses of olive trees and is cloaked at the bottom by an extended crown of wood for the most part practicable,is embellished with a collection of antique furniture and precious accessories that give the rooms a touch of uncommon personality.

Outside, it is framed by a quiet and well-kept park with a lot of lawns, a large swimming pool, and other equipped areas. On the outskirts of Figline Valdarno, along with shops, services, restaurants, and a few kilometers from the famous outlet The Mall, the property is immersed in the most beautiful and varied landscapes of Tuscany. More specifically, it is immersed in the area of Florentine Valdarno between the Pratomagno ridge and the nearby Chianti region, a short distance from Florence and Arezzo, and a few kilometers from the Autostrada del Sole and the main tourist resorts of Tuscany (the villages of Chianti, San Gimignano, Siena and all the renowned valleys that cross it). Here it will be possible to taste the delicious and authentic Tuscan enogastronomic products, visit the wonderful nature reserves of Sant’Antonio and Vallombrosa, and the evocative area of ​​the crags either on foot or by bike. NB On one side of the property, with independent access, live the friendly owners who take care of the maintenance of the park and the swimming pool without interfering in the privacy of the guests.
